Tanner's Surfer Buddies

On Monday, Tanner and I went to the Boost Mobile Pro Surf Competition. This is the second year that we went and I got some great pictures of Tanner with the Pros. We sat on the far end of the event because there were lots of people there. The good news for us is that the surfers got in the water right where we were sitting. Rob Machado, who is Kipp and Kelle's favorite surfer, was stretching when Tanner went to say hi.
Here is Tanner and Rob last year.
Here we are with Sunny Garcia last year and this year. Please look at that baby belly getting some sun! We are 16 weeks along.

Lastly, the big daddy of surfing, 8 time World Champ, Kelly Slater! Tanner and Kelly are both sponsored by Quiksilver. Kelly was so nice to Tanner. He took a picture with him then talked to him for a while before he moved on. Tanner was a little starstruck and super mellow.
We were at the beach all day and we played hard in the sun! It was a great day!
I felt very proud of myself for taking a 1 1/2 year old to the beach, we parked a mile away, with my prego belly, and staying all day. We'll be there again next year.

The sign of a good day: shirt off and dead asleep before we are out of the parking lot! My future surfer boy!
